The New Economy model: “Resources Systemics”

To enter the new economy sustainably – as and for people, on this finite planet – I suggest the following model:

(1) Instead of focusing the intention of projects and ventures to personal accumulation of material wealth, let’s focus it on adding value on 7 levels, not only for us, but also for our stakeholders too (see post on 7D-Value)

(2) Instead of trying to maintain linear models (supplier -> transformation -> client), we’ll create circular models. Let’s design our stakeholders ecosystem, and tap into their hidden and underused resources (on 7 levels: knowledge, networks, buildings, engagement,…). This will be possible if we answer the needs in our ecosystem with our ventures and projects.

So our future business- and social models will create value into the whole ecosystem, and do much more, with much more resources.

Advantages:

1. We activate hidden/underused resources
2. Agility and speed of implementation multiplied
3. Very low risk of new ventures
4. Very high engagement of people, because we include the notion of common good
5. Activating human talent and creativity through positive collaboration
6. Possibility of extra-preneurship for business turnaround

Some consequences will be:

1. Fast business- and societal innovation, and thus economy turnaround
2. Unemployment drops, and senior population & diverse cultures included in society
3. More alignment with personal values and human empowerment
4. Less environmental impacts
5. Most societal needs can be encountered
6. More societal resilience
7. More autonomy of people & regions
8. Health and education are enhanced and much cheaper because systemic activation of knowledge
9. Stress and burnout lowers because better alignment of people and purpose
And in a second phase, the systemic understanding will lead to new ways to deal with multiple challenges like:

Demography and generation issues

Check-mate economical models

Climate change and global warming

Terror and war for resources

Collapsing financial system

Ecology

Energy

War for talent and need of new competences

Hyper regulation, complexity and risk

Social housing

Poverty

Adapted education

Hyper-competition on saturated markets

Unethical governance and political incoherence

New illnesses

Stress, burnout, depression

Food shortages

Rising nationalisms

Human values crisis

It is absolutely impossible to deal with them linearly one after the other, only systemically. Dealing with them one by one, will ruin us and would take way too long to succeed, if ever we do succeed.

We have – first – to understand the “vital functions” of society, and understand how they systemically interconnect with each other:

Education & Training

Agriculture & Nutrition

Communication

Mobility

Health & Sports

Habitat & Construction

Entrepreneuring

Finances – accounting value

Energy

History, Arts & Culture, diversity

Politics, steering, governing, management

Impact investing

Then, creating very simple focus points that everyone can do, systemic projects where every citizen can participate – with a notion of personal autonomy and empowerment – that will lower impact of the different challenges, and even solve them lateron. The intention shifts from personal material accumulation, to service to common good and answering basic human needs. The side-effect of this new thinking will be a circular, sustainable economy, serving common good, creating systemic growth and prosperity, creating new meaningful jobs and activities, where everyone can stand out and contribute, and make a fair living.

The ultimate key is willingness of the individual to question his life, to learn, to empower him/herself, and to create a personal autonomy. That’s a personal decision. Nobody can impose that, or do this job for someone else. We have to be selective on clustering with people who “want something else”, and “who are willing to walk the talk”, and “empower oneself and develop mastery”. This is first a personal work of “cleaning up” ones past, becoming in peace with life’s events. Then develop self-confidence, reconnect to dreams and passions, detect life’s purpose. Then add-on these soft skills, a few outstanding “hard skills” enabling them to stand out and make a true difference.

If everyone does that (or even 10% of the population), the world will enter into a new dynamics of problem-solving, developing new prosperity, creating new added value on all levels, inside a myriad of ecosystems, which are by definition all interconnected. If the common intention can shift from dependance and fear, to autonomy and fulfilment, we can – together – bug this global human-crashing machine, and turn it around into a human-prosperity-life-machine 🙂

It asks a shift into our view on value, on assets/resources and on liabilities/needs. 7 levels. And also shift from 2 dimensional business hierarchical models into 3 dimensional network ecosystem models.

Can you do it ?

Are you in ?
